Chaga mushroom extract – Finland,organic
Chaga mushroom is an adaptogenic mushroom that has been used as a medicinal plant for thousands of years both in Finland and across Asia. The antioxidant content of chaga mushroom is very high. It includes superoxidase dismutase, one of the most important enzymatic antioxidants in the human body, as well as betulinic acid, inodotiol, beta-glucans and polysaccharides. Thanks to these active compounds, chaga mushroom effectively neutralizes and protects against the cell damage caused by free radicals, signs of premature ageing and air pollution. In addition, it hydrates and soothes the skin.
Most of the world’s adaptogenic mushroom extracts are produced from fungal grains and fungal mycelium, not from the actual fruiting bodies. Djusie uses only organically grown Finnish and very high-quality chaga extract, which is extracted entirely from fruiting bodies instead of grains and mycelium. The active ingredients of the mushroom are found in the fruiting bodies. The producer of Djusie’s chaga extract specialises in the cultivation and extraction of, and research into, adaptogenic mushrooms.
